Michael was born with a spiritual energy called Kundalini. All religions ultimately work with the same underlying spiritual energy. Kundalini is concerned with spiritual energy that transcends religious divides. Spiritual energy is (at least) partly sexual, in a broad sense of the word. It is this spiritual energy that is the creative driving force behind Michael’s work. In this sense, the energy does not ‘belong’ to Michael, but is transmuted (or chanelled) by Michael, into creative form/s.
